Loretto dressing

I'm searching for the recipe for a salad dressing that was served at two Italian restaurants in Olean, NY - the Castle and the Alcove Restaurants. There was a company that owned the restaurants called Loretto Foods. Before the company and the restaurants closed, this dressing was also sold locally in grocery stores.
I've come close to reproducing the recipe, but something is still missing. The dressing was a light salmon color and usually served on salad with gorganzola cheese. Anybody have an idea?
Thanks!
